Automated Road Survey System

Automated Road Survey System

The Automated Road Survey System is based on the latest survey techniques utilizing Laser, Global Positioning System and Video image processing tools etc. The Survey Vehicle is used for automatic collection of road condition related data for National Highways. The inventory data include measurement of pavement surface roughness, road geometrics (gradient, horizontal curvature and cross slope), Rut Depth using Spread Lasers, Sensor Measure Texture Depth , Mean Profile Depth and GPS coordinates (X, Y, Z) viz. longitude, latitude & altitude etc.

Key Features of the ARSS are:

  • Longitudinal Profiling (International Roughness Index)
  • Transverse Profiling (Rut Depth)
  • Pavement Surface Texture Depth (SMTD, MPD)
  • Road Geometrics
  • GPS coordinates(Longitude, Latitude & Altitude)
  • Video Imaging for Roadside Furniture
  • Video Imaging for Pavement Surface
  • Real Time In-Vehicle data acquisition
  • Post Processing Software for Data Analysis and Report Preparation
